  1. Omg these bring amazing memories. We celebrated every major life event if it was really special at Pier 4 (Jimmy's too) If you go out west a bit--Casa Barbi --signature chianti bottles and Jack and Marian'a in Coolidge Corner

    1. Thanks, Judy, for sharing these memories. I don't remember Casa Barbi. Where was it located? I loved Jack and Marion's. Now there was a real deli!

    2. Casa Barbi was located at 1277 Comm. Ave. in Allston. It was Our House(West) from 1975 until 2011 when it became Jalapeno's briefly, then the Shanghai Social Club and is now Hopewell Bar & Kitchen.

    3. Gallaghers on Congress St had desserts flambé at the table...sadly gone. What was the name of that cafeteria style lunch spot on City Hall Ave between School St and Court Sq? The restaurant name began with a P.
